Here is a partial and unorganized list of some of the stuff mentioned at the ISO/RTO Training Working Group meeting.
- International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) – certifying body for standards-based training program …blesses you to grant globally-accepted continuing education hours to learners
- Checklist Manifesto – great book by Dr. Atul Gawande about how the use of checklists can help even the smartest people from making needless mistakes
- International Board of Standards for Training, Performance, and Instruction (ibstpi) – lower case acronym intentional …this is the body that creates the standards upon which many learning industry certifications are based
- Xyleme Author – XML-based content development that encourages a more atomic approach to content development that encourages reuse, helps with version control, and acts as a central location for the storage of content …cool because it allows export into deliverable formats such as PDF, web, PowerPoint, Word, etc.
- Bottom-Line Performance – outside contractor for computer-based training (CBT) development
- proofhq.com – online proofreading tool
- imeetcentral.com – online project management, collaboration, and workflow tool
- Articulate Online – online delivery of content made with Articulate learning content creation tools
- e-Learning and Science of Instruction – book containing research-based recommendations for how to design learning materials for better understanding
- Mindmapping – using mindmapping to see the connections when designing and developing training is very helpful …although this book wasn’t specifically mentioned, it is the one that I can vouch for that describes the process really well
Please make add the things I missed in the comment section.
